Almost 600 security violations! The long wait is over… well, sort of.
We will still need to see who gets charged. There is doubtless a lot more to unpack in this story, including the potential criminal implications of those involved.
Here is what the Associated Press has reported so far:
The State Department has completed its internal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of private email and found violations by 38 people, some of whom may face disciplinary action.
The department determined that those 38 people were “culpable” in 91 cases of sending classified information in messages that ended up in Clinton’s personal email. The 38 are current and former State Department officials but were not identified in the report that was sent to Congress this week.
The investigation covered 33,000 emails that Clinton turned over for review after her use of the private email account became public. The department said it found a total of 588 violations involving information then or now deemed to be classified, but could not assign fault in 497 cases.
I wonder if this probe was able to track down Anthony Weiner’s laptop, and the significant cache of classified emails said to have raised concerns by the investigators involved just before that shockingly rapid last-minute sifting of emails the FBI supposedly pulled off.
Now that they have wrapped up this probe, what should they look into next?
Have we had any answers on Debbie Washerman-Schutz’s sketchy IT guys that were trying to flee the country? That seems like it might be a pretty rich vein you could mine for potential criminality.
Chuck Ross has uploaded the complete report.
Here it is for a ‘little light reading’.
What’s the over/under on Hillary being QUITE so cocky as she was now that this report has finally dropped?
